Goals for 2011

Happy New Year!  So it’s already January 4, and I haven’t posted any goals for this year! I’m keeping it simple this year and going with 3 main goals instead of making so many goals that I end up forgetting about some (or all) of them. 

1. Lose the baby weight. Obviously, I can’t work on this one until I actually have Charlotte, but I am hoping that by the end of the year I can be down to 170. I’d love to be at my final goal weight of 160 by then, but I don’t know if that’s possible or not. The plan is to track my calories on SparkPeople like always and develop a consistent exercise routine post-partum. I’ve lost weight before, so I can do it again, but I admit that I am a little apprehensive since I will be juggling time with Charlotte and Stephen and time at my job, but people do it every day, right? 

2. Read through the Bible. I did this a couple of years ago and would like to do it again. I do well with structured plans for Bible reading, and Stephen and I are using this chronological plan that I am enjoying so far.

3. Complete Couch to 5k a second time and run in at least 3 races by the end of the year. I have missed running a LOT since being pregnant, and I can’t wait to get started on it again, so as soon as I am cleared for exercise post-partum, I am starting C25k again. It kind of pains me to think of having to start ALL. OVER. with my running, but I am hoping it won’t be as hard since I know I can do it. If the running goes well, I just may consider training for a half marathon again, but we will see. 

That’s it for my goals. I think having 3 large goals to work on will help me stay focused, and I hope that I can look back on the year with pride at what I have accomplished. 

What are your goals for 2011? What are you doing to make sure you reach them?

  1. Our church (FBC Millington) is reading the Chronological Bible this year. Everyone bought the same copy ($15 at LifeWay) to make it easier. Val and I are going to do our best to make it through the whole year!


Tell me your thoughts! I'd love to read them.
